UK Fans of the Day Want Afternoon Notes


A few notes….

 – Kentucky landed another recruit today in the form of Langston Newton, again proving both that Joker’s theory on using his assistants to target guys they can actually land and focusing on the lines is paying off.  Rick Brooks decided early in his tenure that he was going to put emphasis on building the offensive and defensive line and that proved to be, arguably, the biggest reason Kentucky’s program started to improve.  Joker has remained equally committed to it and has now picked up guys on both sides that are not just bodies.  They’re players that should be physically able to hang in the SEC and allow the staff to fill the spots around them with athletes and guys they can develop.  It’s hard not to be excited about what Joker and his staff are accomplishing right now.  Let’s hope the momentum translates to the field.

 – In another sad story for a guy that has had several obstacles the past few years, former Louisville head coach Steve Kragthorpe has resigned as LSU’s offensive coordinator due to Parkinson’s Disease.  Kragthorpe will remain on the staff as the quarterbacks coach, but has given up the responsibilities that come with being coordinator.  Best wishes to him and his family.  They’ve been through a lot lately.

 – Just in case you were fully feeling like football season was underway, the USA Today Coaches Poll was released earlier this afternoon.  Oklahoma is the pre-season #1 school, while Auburn makes a run for another title from the starting position of #19.  Eight teams were in the Top 25 and Tennessee also received votes, making the Cats, Ole Miss and Vandy as the only teams that didn’t register.  The bigger the climb, the sweeter the RISE!!!!!

 – Quick question for you.  Who has two SEC Tournament titles and loves America?  This guy

 – Class is now in session over at CBS Sports and the recruiting experts and resident bloggers each offered up their five lessons learned during the July recruiting period.  There are tons of notes about Kentucky targets and gives a pretty good feel for what you missed this summer while you were hanging out at the beach throwing a frisbee in dress pants. 

 – If you’re an ESPN Insider, you might enjoy this column on the SEC’s rise as a basketball conference.  If you’re not, you’ll probably think I’m a jerk.  Spoiler:  I am.

 – If you’ll be in Orlando this fall, you might have a chance to watch history collide.  Both Minnesota and Texas Tech are participating in the Old Spice Classic and there’s a chance that Tubby Smith and Billy Gillispie will square off.  Should this happen, this might just result in a drastic wave of continued disinterest from Kentucky fans as they continue to watch good basketball and John Calipari.  Other than that, should be worth watching.

If you missed today’s episode of Kentucky Sports Radio, you missed the Oscar and Matt party. Make sure you do yourself the favor of catching up with the podcast below. And then don’t say we never gave you anything.
